EXPO ‘Annette Dam: More or Less’ – Goldfingers, Copenhagen (DK) – 29 Juin-31 Aout 2013

« Annette Dam: More or Less«   -  Goldfingers  (Copenhagen, Denmark)

"Annette Dam: More or Less"  -  Goldfingers  (Copenhagen, Denmark)  29-Jun-2013 - 31-Aug-2013    website: www.goldfingers.dk  mail: mail@goldfingers.dk(Annette Dam brooches  « More or Less » 2013 Gold plated silver, enamel, sash ribbon, steel)

An exhibition about precious gems, daisy brooches and copying
A big, raw diamond that looks more like a piece of dirty salt, rather than an expensive gem. A flat ring made of gold, with a hole in it, where the diamond should sit. Jewelry artist Annette Dam, who last year was formally recognized for her imaginative talents with the Saint Loye Award, completely defies the conventional wisdom of VALUE in her new exhibition More or Less.
The exhibition consists of several jewelry series, each with their own title and peculiar approach, such as the above mentioned diamond ring.  Another group of pieces plays on the famous daisy brooch series by renowned jeweler Georg Jensen, seeking to explore the gray zone between fertile sources of inspiration, and generic replicas. In other words, perfection, reproduction and convention of tastes, are subject to debate, as reflected by Annette Dam’s choice of title, turning architect Mies van der Rohe’s mantra upside down: Less is More or More or Less?
It all depends on the eye of the beholder. Here, the artist challenges her audience to contemplate upon the individual pieces, to trace their process from the original idea to the jewelry to which they evolved. Clues tell the story about tradition, material status, and value. All the pieces at the exhibition encapsulate process and reflection, joined by gestalt, mounted on large mood boards, demonstrating an artist who comments, nuances upon, and ironizes over the concept of “jewelry”.
After all, what is best, most precious and aesthetically beautiful?

Further more, Annette Dam also exhibits works at the Nordic exhibition From the Coolest Corner and the Biennale of crafts and design 2013 in Rundeaarn, Copenhagen Denmark.

On ordinary days… KAORI JUZU

KAORI_JUZU  Goldfingers  goldfingers.dk

On ordinary days…
I aspire to work simply for the sake of inspiration, before mind starts to eat the joy from inspiration. The making of jewellery is a totally open process where shapes, colours and size meet, interact and affect each other. Hand, metal and enamel are in a constant dialogue. In this intensive process layers of colour are built up until such moment: like the moon gleaming on water – soft lifting, serene, subdued, yet strong enough to have inherited a life as well as a form. No longer me. Not a bad thing on ordinary days.

EXPO ‘BODYPARTy’ – Goldfingers Gallery, Copenhagen (DK) – 10 Janv.-5 Fevr. 2013

BODYPARTy / Katrine Borup

10 jan – 5 feb / Fernisering 9 jan. kl 16-19 / Artist talk 16 jan 16.30 -17.30

BODYPARTy is a jewellery series related to anatomic models – objects that playfully address a likeness to body parts, organs, tissue types, cell structures etc.

It can be characterized as a sort of information project but also as a critique of today’s prevailing concept of the body that is based on information and science. We know EVERYTHING there is to know about what is healthy and unhealthy for us. We are bombarded with self-help books, articles in women’s magazines and information campaigns. Control and restraint are in vogue; pleasure and indulgence are considered signs of weakness.
All the jewellery is made of balloons. This choice is not least based on a desire to strike a contrast to the rational mindset – balloons are associated with celebrations and happy occasions, childish innocence; they hold immediate appeal and are very physical ….they make us want to reach out and touch. In the project, some of the most prominent balloon characteristics, such as their inflatability, have been used as a comment on to the body-related theme.
The project also plays with the concepts of applied art, crafts, art and design, in part by virtue of the functional quality of some of the pieces – although the function does border on the absurd.
The jewellery in the BODYPARTy series consists of deliberately contradictory, almost inconsistent objects, at once playful and serious, appealing and unappealing, intellectual and sensuous. At once cause and effect or disease, cure and prevention in an often confounding mix.
“The fact is that we all have a risk of dying of all sorts of things. And the risk of dying is 100 percent.”
John Brodersen, associate professor in the Department of Public Health, the University of Copenhagen

Katrine Borup Piece: 7 units a week … well, maybe just a drop more … /red wine flask 2013

Wine-coloured mouths of balloons, two complete balloons, corks, red leather string, silver
My worst visions of a stomach suffering the effects of too much red wine – spongy and full of holes. Two complete balloons have been inserted into the stomach to mark the transitions to, respectively, the oesophagus and the intestines, and the size and shape of the stomach is approximately correct. This piece of jewellery is worn on the body like a waist pack, so that the container is located on top of the actual stomach on the left side of the body, directly underneath the ribs. The wearer can fill the two balloons with a liquid according to preference (and conscience).  The red X on the back acts as a ‘NO’ mark.

discokollaps_web dans Gal. Goldfingers (DK)
Katrine BorupPiece: Disco Collapse/posture-correcting back jewellery 2013
Balloon ends from long, thin neutral-colour balloon animal balloons
The human spine consists of 24 vertebrae, the os sacrum and the coccyx. In between the vertebrae (7 cervical (neck) vertebrae, 12 thoracic (middle back) vertebrae and 5 lumbar (lower back) vertebrae) there are a total of 23 elastic discs, made of cartilage, which serve as buffers to prevent the shock of body movements from affecting the brain. Over time, the discs are worn, and in the Western world especially, many people suffer from back problems; a prolapsed disc is a common diagnosis. Too much sedentary work is one of the explanations, and the solution – both the prevention and the cure – is physical activity and posture-correcting and muscle-strengthening back training.

Disco Collapse consists of 23 balloon discs that can be assembled to form 4 small (disco) balls (which also bear some resemblance to massage balls), which in turn can be combined in pairs to form “dumbbells”. The piece can take on a wide variety of shapes, from the completely collapsed to the carefully assembled. The 23 balloon discs vary in size like the discs of the spine, and the assembly of the balloon snippets plays on the fact that a prolapsed disc is a bulge on a disc that occurs as the soft centre of the disc pushes through the tough connective tissue that surrounds the disc. The balloon discs consist of nothing but bulges. The mouth of a balloon has been integrated to reflect a dream of simply being able to fix a prolapsed buffer by re-inflating it.

 Katrine Borup -  Piece: Drowning by E-numbers 2013
Balloon ends from long, thin balloon animal balloons, thread
A section of my beautifully colour-enhanced small intestine enlarged ten times.
This piece of jewellery resembles the shape and appearance of the small intestine – a section of human small intestine enlarged ten times. The inside of the small intestine is covered in intestinal villi: millimetre-sized folds that increase the surface area of the small intestine and thus the absorption of nutrients considerably. Drowning by E-numbers is a wide belt or tube that one pulls up around one’s body (or down – depending on one’s build) – a balloon corset. Drowning by E-numbers maintains the same diameter throughout the length of the tube, so unlike a normal corset it will fit loosely around the waist and tend to fold up, turning the ”villi-lined” interior inside-out. In this state, the piece almost resembles a bathing ring or life ring. Others might be reminded of a “belly tyre”. While the corset is associated with CONTROL, the tyre is a sign of the opposite. The title refers to food colouring and plays with the idea that it takes knowledge and information to eat right. Anyone taking on that challenge might soon find themselves drowning in the vast ocean of often contradictory information on the topic.

EXPO ‘Leonor Hipólito: Beyond Emotions’ – Goldfingers, Copenhagen (DK) – 12 Oct.-8 Nov. 2012

« Leonor Hipólito: Beyond Emotions »  – Goldfingers  (Copenhagen, Denmark)  12-Oct-2012 – 08-Nov-2012

 "Leonor Hipólito: Beyond Emotions"  Place: Goldfingers  (Copenhagen, Denmark)  12-Oct-2012 - 08-Nov-2012    website: www.goldfingers.dk  mail: mail@goldfingers.dk

Leonor Hipólito – object/pendant : Beyond Emotions 2012 – Goldplated brass

« Beyond Emotions projects moments of my life that lingered in my mind for a long time blurring the boundaries between emotions of the past and the present. In the attempt to visualize them, by the exercise of producing works, I am not illustrating but rather evoking an emotional content. Wearable, they hold onto the body playing their role as metaphors for both placement and displacement.
Beyond Emotions is also a book in which my works and my writings interweave with one another to form a single picture yet variable in perspective.
The book was realized in collaboration with Arne Kaiser who did the photography and graphic design. » Leonor Hipólito 2012

The jewellery by Gemma Draper is characterized by an artistic and philosophical approach. Her pieces can be seen as sculptural objects that invites dialogue and interpretation. By experimenting with material- and colour combinations she creates composite structures through poetic and abstract shapes.

LakeFortitude is a speculative work, where Gemma Draper explores doubt, opportunities, acceptance and escapism.

« When we try to answer the eternal question of what we want -and only have we become who we are because we have desired-, traditionally we have two forms of escapism. We can flee to the doubt about what we want, or we can escape that doubt. These two forms of doubt, these two shelters, coexist in all of us and it is not always so easy to separate them. And while they can never be found in their purest forms, our way of life makes it clear that we tend to be escape artists of one or other kind. » Adam Phillips « Houdini’s Box »

An object series presents the leftovers from the working process of a jewellery artist: Metal scraps, filings, models, worn out tools, funding applications, project descriptions, crushed gemstones and failed products that did not meet the requirements of aesthetics, content or craftsmanship.
Other pieces belongs to the undefined stage between two positions for instance between jewellery and objects, between dye and mineral or between white and black.

CPH : DUCKS af Marie-Louise Kristensen

An alternative tale told in and around Copenhagen

EXPO 'CPH:DUCKS' - Goldfingers, Copenhagen (DK)- 9 Juin-9 Juill. 2011 dans Danemark (DK) 250583_196742027038769_100001089208634_551910_7976673_n

Copenhagen’s many towers and spires ….. a summer romance and the predictable break up ….. sensations and emotions…. paired with specially chosen places …. and a whole lot of road work…..
Characteristically, Marie-Louise’s work transforms the objects and the concepts that we are surrounded by into an original jewellery statement relating to the word around us.
The underlying humour invites an easy and immediate translation of the individual works. The complexity, the comment and the double meaning lie in the layers below.
